1993 Nissan Skyline GTS-T R32
Our most popular offering, the R32 coupe, is becoming a rare commodity. With it's legendary styling, durable drive train, and rewarding drive, this a real Japanese classic. A true Type M adds extra aesthetics, with it's GT-R front bumper, make for an aggressive look, and hints that this Skyline was not the stripped down trim version. This particular vehicle is finished in Gun Gray Metallic (KH2), which is among the most desirable colors, not to mention one of the best looking. The paint shows well for it's age, sans some imperfections like normal scratches, dings, and scuffs associated with a 26 year old car. The clear coat has an abundance of luster and the metallic can really be appreciated. The body itself is very straight and has been kept up well. Fitted with matching GT-R forged wheels, and a set of Cusco Coilovers, this sleek 1993 coupe ticks all the boxes.
The interior has been left mostly unchanged from the factory giving a very authentic feel. The seats have been kept up well, free of any notable tears or stains. The cockpit is driver oriented, and the ergonomics are great in this model. The controls are all at hand and clearly labeled. The shifter trim does have some wear from use, but overall the interior is quite nice and benefits from a classy Nardi steering wheel and NISMO knob. The factory power accessories are working as they should; the windows, power mirrors, and power locks are functional. The automatic climate control is functioning, and the A/C keeps interior temps down in the summer. The dash condition is good and even lacks the typical bubble or cracking. The carpets and door cards have been well kept, and the rear seats show signs of little use. The headliner is free of any stains or sags, and the interior plastics have held up great. Lastly, an updated Pioneer head unit pipes the tunes through the factory speakers.
Popping the hood reveals Nissan's renowned workhorse, the RB20DET. With only 80K verified miles, it's only just getting broken in. The turbocharged two liter jolts to life when you turn the key, care of a new 12V battery installed by one of our techs. The straight six is smooth and benefits from a new an air intake and free flowing FGK polished exhaust, aiding fuel economy and performance. The largely untouched engine bay is refreshing to find, as many have been modified in some form over their lifetime. For good measure, the most expensive maintenance service has been performed, as a new timing belt and water pump were installed. Additionally new serpentine belts have been installed so that the power accessories can be relied upon. Power comes on quickly as the turbo spools and pulls heartily to redline, with a nice mellow tone emitting from the rear. The 5 speed shifts easily making it a blast to row through the gears. Power is sent rearward with immediacy and the vehicles accelerates with a broad, linear, power curve. The suspension is better handling than most new vehicles and R32's with OE suspension, and handles road imperfections and low clearances without an issue. All four corners utilize adjustable Cusco dampers, and the cornering is flat and stable. Rolling stock are the OEM GT-R alloys, fitted with four brand new tires, mounted and balanced by one of our trained techs. An oil service has been recently performed by one of our trained technicians prior to sale, and a Virginia State Safety Inspection ensures the car is ready to withstand the rigors of daily driving. The brakes are quick to respond, and slow this coupe down in a jiffy. Overall, it's a perfect candidate to be daily driven.
